Scouting for my new YogaBerlin map, I got interested in yoga quit a bit and as I am currently working on a BertaHamburg map, I also found many yoga studios in Hamburg and many different types of yoga. Here are my Top yoga experience of the last few weeks!
Hot Yoga Norderstedt
This is the first Hot Yoga studio for Hamburg's North and surroundings. All classes are designed for 60 minutes of Hot Yoga and consist of a sequence of 16 yoga exercises including 2 breathing exercises. For those who love Bikram Yoga but often find 90 minutes too much. Members may also use a sauna.

Yoga at the Alster
Everything is more relaxed on the water, that's what Hamburger know best. Many outdoor yoga classes in Hamburg are offered here, especially in summer. We recommend the 'Stegyoga classes', which take place on a jetty at the Alster.
Yogaloft, Koppel 38, 20099 Hamburg; Café Barca, An der Alster 67a, 20099 Hamburg; Yoga auf der Alster – Jungfernstieg 58/Binnenalster jetty 1–2; firstname.lastname@example.org, www.yogaanderalster.net
The concept of this yoga studio combines yoga with art, yoga workshops and yoga classes are host in an art room with a cool flair. In summer, outdoor yoga classes are offered three times a week at the Alster "Alsteryoga".

Pop up Yoga
The idea is to practice yoga in places that everyone loves, e. g. in cafés, parks, by the water, etc. This summer they offen 'yoga with a view', like yoga on the rooftop of Hafencity.
Roggenkamp 10, 22305 Hamburg, +49 172 42 22 770, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.popupyoga.de
Yoga and live music = a combination that touches. Head off and follow the beat of the heart, that's Jennis' mission. The concept of Yoga Concerts is a series of yoga events. I.e. there is no fixed place, studio or similar and therefore no fixed day or music style. Every Yoga Concert has a new sound, a new location and also a new day.
The last yoga concert to place at Terrace Hill, Feldstraße 66, 5th floor, 20359 Hamburg, email@example.com, www.yogaconcerts.de, on the 8th of August at 19:30–21:00, 25 €

Thank you to my dear co-writer Paulina Czujko, who helped me scouting and writing this piece! She is the Hamburg expert, as she lived in Hamburg as a teenager and graduated there. I met her in Berlin on one of my KiezWalks, because she studied Nutritional Sciences here, but in September she will be my base in Hamburg and open the Hot Yoga Studio 'Hot Yoga Norderstedt'.
